    Ex-Lion, 4-time Pro Bowl DE Bill Glass dies at 86


    Cleveland — Former Lions defensive end Bill Glass, a four-time Pro Bowler with Cleveland and member of the Browns’ 1964 NFL championship team, has died. He was 86.

    The Browns said Glass died Sunday night surrounded by family at his home in Waxahachie, Texas. The cause of death was not immediately known.

    Glass spent seven seasons with the Browns, who acquired him from the Lions as part of the trade involving quarterback Milt Plum.

    An All-American offensive guard at Baylor, Glass switched to defense when he began his pro career in 1957 with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. A year later he joined the Lions, who had drafted him with the No. 12 overall pick.

    Glass spent four seasons with Detroit before going to Cleveland, where he became a star. He was credited with 161/21/2 sacks in 1965, back when they were not recognized as an official stat by the league.
